This 15 foot hand crack takes nice gear and puts you in some funky jam postures. When the crack fizzles out, move left across a short ledge, place some medium / small stoppers or tricams, move left around a bulge, clip the bolt, and move up through some funky sloper moves to gain a nice big ledge. Throw in a baby cam or two and top out, then move left to the anchors for Schwarze Weissnergrat.


This is the obvious 4 inch splitter crack on the righthand side of Höhe Hinterland just left of the Giant Man roof.

Belay in front of a small group of trees before the short slab leading up to the climb.


Two or three Big Cams (3, 3.5, 4), small/medium nuts or tricams, and some baby cams to protect the easy topout.

The quartz and mica dike and similar to Gem Hunter but not that spectacular.
Dike to the top looks possible. The edges of the crack are sharp and taping hands would prevent skin lost.
